Inspire Power, Extra Effort, & Care

This is the original bestselling 212 (two-twelve) book and message by Sam Parker that's inspiring millions of people around the world.

The premise: "At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils. And with boiling water, comes steam. And with steam, you can power a train. Just one extra degree makes all the difference."

If the bulletin board in your school doesn't inspire team members to up their game and embrace their personal power when teaching, then it is time to update your bulletin boards with a message and ideas to help your teachers take charge of their classrooms.

"As a first-year principal, I started with an engrained culture that needed to be changed. I found InspireYourPeople.com and knew the tools could support a unifying message to drive the change I wanted for my school. After using 212° the extra degree for three years and with less money than ever, we had the highest reading results in the area, highest math gains overall over 3 years, and this past year, showed the most significant SOL score improvements."

Cross The Line materials for faculty engagement and commitment

Cross The Line

Inspire Faculty Commitment & Resilience

The premise: "With everything, there's a line. On one side of the line is a greater chance to make good things happen (better results, better relationships, more opportunities). On the other side of the line, there's less of a chance. It's your choice which side you want to be on."

Cultivate an environment where teachers recognize their commitment to the team, where they understand that the problems of last year are in the past, and that it is the responsibility of each teacher to bounce back from hardships of the past.

4 points to Crossing The Line: Choose to Commit. Work Hard. Focus. Bounce Back.

Love Your People

Cultivate trust & accountability

No kittens or rainbows. Just truth.

Inspire your people to be kinder and more accountable to each other and the people they serve.
